The CFPS academy of legal studies, which is a part of the Centre For Professional Studies (CFPS), is the leading institution in Sri Lanka that conducts classes for law-related courses in Sri Lanka.

In 2007 the CFPS used its expertise in teaching law for yet another programme – the LL.B Degree of the University of London. The CFPS is today a Registered Centre of the University of London International Programmes for their LL.B degree.

In order to commemorate 20 years in the provision of law education in Sri Lanka, the CFPS is giving students the unique opportunity of scholarships which are worth the value of Rs 7.5 million.
This is offered to students and candidates who have demonstrated exceptional achievements in both curricular and co-curricular activities in school and in the community. An aptitude test will be held on 10 July at Nalanda College, Colombo 10 from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. to shortlist candidates for scholarships.
The aptitude test will consist of IQ, general knowledge and language (essay and comprehension) in English. The scholarship examination is conducted free of charge where interested applicants should register on or before 30 June.
The full scholarship offered will be 100% coverage of the fees payable to both CFPS and the University of London and there will also be a three part scholarship scheme that will consist of, scholarship Category A that will cover 100% of CFPS fees only, whilst Category B will consist of only 50% cost of CFPS fees and Category C, where 25% fees of CFPS only will be waived. More information of the scholarship programme is available on www.cfpssrilanka.com.
Lectures for the CFPS University of London Course are conducted by an experienced and dynamic panel of lecturers which consists of practicing lawyers, law graduates, academics and barristers.
Special features of the CFPS London LL.B courses include group classes, where individual attention is given to each student, with students getting maximum time with each lecturer to discuss and clarify difficult areas.
Unlimited access is given to online resources and special arrangements are made for students to get a maximum number of tutorials corrected by qualified tutors. They also use the latest teaching techniques such as multimedia presentations, group work etc in their lectures. Special lectures are also conducted on academic writing. The CFPS also conducts mock trials and organises court visits and Parliamentary visits for their students.
Whilst this is the first time that a scholarship of this calibre has been offered to the Sri Lankan students, CFPS is confident that this unique opportunity to obtain a scholarship for a course of an university, which is ranked amongst top universities in the world, provides an ideal chance in obtaining a highly-valued degree, which opens many doors in the field of law.
